How to Make

  1. Cover the craft pot in PVA glue, then stand upright on a surface that you don't mind getting glue on (incase it drips).
  2. Stick a red noodle onto the bottom of the craft pot in a vertical position.
  3. Wet the end of another red noodle and stick it to the top of the one attached to the pot. Repeat this until the red line reaches the top of the pot, you might have to trim the last one with scissors.
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 with the other colours of the rainbow around the whole pot until it is completely covered and then wait until the glue is completely dry before using.

Top Tip

Wait until the glue is slightly tacky before sticking down the noodles to prevent them sliding off.
